White Spots on the Body – What are These?
Please see your dermatologist or doctor for a diagnosis. White spots on the body are usually one of these things: tinea versicolor (overgrowth of a certain yeast), vitiligo (autoimmune), or sun damage.
If all the white spots are in the areas where you get the most light/sun like your upper back, forearms, front of the shins……well then probably sun damage. Tinea usually involves mostly the trunk but can spread to other areas. And vitiligo can be all over or very limited depending on the type. See your doctor! 🙂
